Thanks CrashFu, very helpful. I've never seen a forum before...
I'm not late, I'm an early adopter. Just not a forum junkie. I heard they had laid off some employees and I was curious if this was going to impact a game I'd already paid for. I was plowing through the forums and didn't find any direct answers, so if you have a link or something... yeah, that would be great.
I will email the company directly, but thought it wouldn't hurt to look on the forums first. So glad I did.
There is a model for developing games like this and having people put down money in beta should actually increase the odds of funding the project, not shuttering it. Maybe there wasn't as much interest as initially anticipated, maybe there wasn't anywhere else to go with a space sim. I'm curious more than anything.
Nobody owes me anything, I'm just surprised and maybe a little disappointed.
